Space for Clay is the brainchild of Rosella Schembri, who aspires to use her informal teaching style to convey the beauty of clay to her clients. Rosella is not one who is after titles or describing herself as a typical potter or clayworker. Instead, she thinks of herself as a facilitator that leads the user to what they hope to achieve – a pottery architect.

She has been experimenting with clay since 1994, and despite the fact that she trained extensively in the UK, there was never the intention to turn it into a full time career. After a long career in Civil Service, Rosella decided to utilise her project management and planning skills in the design of her pieces.
